Last year going into the 2022 NFL season, the Seattle Seahawks (on paper) had one of the worst quarterback situations in the NFL. Drew Lock, who had been a part of the Russell Wilson trade from Denver, was the assumed (and probably preferred) replacement amongst fans for Wilson after the deal. Despite this, head coach Pete Carroll insisted that the QB job was wide open.

In came Geno Smith. He seized his opportunity and put up career highs in his first season as a full-time starter since his stint with the New York Jets early in his career.

Although Smith had a fantastic 2022 season, there are some red flags to watch out for coming into 2023. One of the bigger question marks was his age. Smith is 32 years old.

These three QBs could replace Geno Smith with the Seattle Seahawks

Therefore, a decline in play is a possibility at any point in time. It's for that reason that the Seahawks flirted with drafting a QB at number 5 overall. The team reportedly interviewed the top 4 QB prospects, Will Levis, Anthony Richardson, Bryce Young, and CJ Stroud.

There's no reason to think Seattle wouldn't look to do the same in the 2024 offseason. Smith will be a year older at that point, and going into his second year of a 3-year contract. Although hopefully, it won't need to be an immediate replacement, general manager John Schneider and coach Carroll should evaluate all their options heading into March of 2024. If they choose to do so, whether it be a young guy to develop behind Smith or an immediate replacement, there are some intriguing ways they could go about it.
